The UTEP Miners and North Texas Mean Green face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at UNT Coliseum. When these two teams faced off in January of 2021 it was North Texas that won 74-65. 

UTEP comes into this game with a 14-8 record overall and they have gone 9-11 against the spread. In the last game against Rice, it was a close game, but they were able to win by two points on the road. UTEP is averaging 69.1 points while their defense is giving up 65.2 points per game. Souley Boum has been the top player for UTEP averaging 18.9 points while shooting 37.3 percent from the field and 36.3 percent from behind the three point line. In this game, UTEP needs to be the team that gets out to a fast start. 

On the other side of this matchup is the North Texas Mean Green who sits with a 16-4 record and they have gone 11-6-1 against the spread. In the last game against UTSA the defense was strong giving up only 45 points and that led to the blowout victory. The Mean Green is averaging 66.5 points while their defense is giving up 56 points per game. This is a defense first team, and they will really try to slow down the Miners. Tylor Perry has been the top player for North Texas averaging 14.2 points while shooting 44.7 percent from the field.

The Mean Green are 0-5 against the spread in their last five home games against a team with a winning road record. The over is 5-1 in North Teas last six home games against a winning road record. 

This game is all going to come down to the pace and if UTEP can push the pace. I don’t think UTEP is going to find a lot of success scoring against North Texas, and that will be the difference in this game. I wouldn’t be shocked if UTEP finishes under 50 points, and that will be the difference in this game. Back North Texas to come away with a cover of the spread.
